We have blinds on the front window with a sofa backing onto them. The better half was forever pulling the sofa out of the blinds every time she opened or closed them. Simple solution:

Sofa Stops

A couple of pieces of pine 1×6, a little bandsaw work and some sanding and volia a pair of sofa stops. The notch holds the back legs of the sofa and keeps them away from the wall just enough to stay out of the blinds. This would also prevent the sofa from rubbing on a painted wall.

Finished with Johnson’s paste floor wax.

The better half mentioned to me, out of the blue, how nice they worked. A brownie point for the kid! LOL
